Like horses, dogs gallop and there are 2 kinds of gallops, probably a few more, but let’s just talk about two:
If you throw a lot of rollers, or you have a super drivey disc killer, or experience Also known as Irrational Leaping, Premature Ejumpulation happens when a dog leaps before a disc is catchable. This phenomena is most often seen in long tosses and is almost always More, you probably have a head down gallop going on. The head down gallop means they are running like hell! Most dogs cannot If the dog is standing underneath you, facing in the same direction, you are in Change position. This position is uncomfortable for many dogs due to the intense positional pressure More leads or collect while galloping with the head down. Just as a basketball player who is sprinting as fast as possible cannot collect for a dunk dog’s can’t collect for a decent leap while sprinting as fast as they can with that head down gallop.
There is also a heads up gallop, still running, and perhaps a sprint, but not as fast as The Dog is a player archetype defined by The Dog. There are always a few canine athletes that really separate themselves from the pack. Many great disc dog teams have More can move. For some people this only happens when the dog is tired. The heads up gallop should happen because the dog has appropriate expectations and has plenty of time to approach and catch a well placed target.
Watch Yachi and Shaun Hirai play. Watch the dogs. There is a total heads up gallop going on there. Their dogs move smoothly and purposefully with their heads up, not fast at all. They are patient and reading the situation.
Premature ejumpulation, leaping under the disc, and tipping the disc from underneath are all caused by An Over is any leaping catch that happens over top of the handler’s body. Overs are usually named by the part of the body over which the dog flies, i.e More pursuit, usually a head down gallop.When the dog leaves the handler with the head down, running like crazy, he cannot collect. He cannot change leads. It takes several yards for the dog to back the speed off to have control necessary to make a quality leap. Combine the head down gallop with a more than healthy desire to bite a disc (Malinois and Cattle Dog handlers, this probably means you…) and it’s a recipe for disaster in terms of catch percentage on longer throws.
Next is an important feature in a fast paced game. Everything hinges upon Next. If you like the game, then Next is important to you. When a dog loves to More time I’ll go into detail about teaching your dog to run with a Heads Up gallop.
